Known Crewmember® Program

The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) worked in close partnership with Airlines for America (A4A), the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and NATA Compliance Services to bring the Known Crewmember® Program to certain charter operators.

KCM® Eligibility

Operator Eligibility

In May 2014, the Known Crewmember® (KCM®) Program was extended to air charter operators with a TSA Twelve-Five Standard Security Program (TFSSP) and/or a Private Charter Standard Security Program (PCSSP).

If your company is a Part 125 or Part 135 operator that is regulated by TSA under one of the above security programs, your company and flight crewmembers can benefit.
